The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

She smells like angels ought to smell


If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a page of quotes from the movie, Sin City. I saw it over the weekend, and I thought it was outstanding. It may not be your cup of tea due to the extreme violence, but it was very well done.

there is no achilles heel in the film. heroes of epic proportions. mickey rourke has always been one of my most favorite actors. one of the best actors out there, past, present, and future.

bruce willis comes a close second.

the women are super hot.

the villains are super evil, almost surreally so.

the classic good against evil struggle in technicolor, with a predominance of red

the sets, the dialogue, the direction, the plot are all par excellence.

frank miller is a genius.
robert rodriguez is a genius.

did you know robert rodriguez also directed el mariachi (on a shoestring budget) and from dusk til dawn?

i could probably go on for some time, but...

I just love the LOOK of the movie, fabulous. I bought the DVD...

I have a real "thing" for Jessica Alba!! Nothing wrong with Bruce Willis either.

And Rodriguez... I really liked El Mariachi... great director.

Rick... thanks for stopping by my blog, and many thanks for the poetry.
